As promised I've now scanned the OD training programme from triathlete's world. I'm going to use it to prepare for Barcelona. It was designed to work around a normal person's schedule (do any of us qualify as 'normal'?), and it doesn't seem too crazy. They suggest trying to get a couple of weights sessions in each week too.

The forum won't let me upload it, so PM with your email address and i'll send it to you: unless anyone has an ftp site that I can upload it to?

As with any training programme, try it out for a few weeks and if it isn't working as well as you hoped, then tweak it to do so.

Blinkybaz, you fool. You shouldn't even let the thought of stepping up a distance enter your head, let alone post the idea on the Forum. Once you've posted it, you're in it!

There is a new'ish online service at www.ontri.com, which gives an online programme for various distance races, and will peak for the date of your race. You get a daily/weekly email of you plan, and can log your work outs online. There's also a special app for the iPhone.

2010: White Horse Challenge, Dragon Ride, RoW Sprint, IM UK 70.3, Eastnor Castle Middle Distance, IM UK: All boxes ticked
2011: Now to go faster. Then IronMan Wales came along, so the speedwork can wait until 2012

Yes please, I've mentally signed myself up for an OD next season. Just got to get the BCTTT membership sorted and then it's no turning back time.

Some of the best things in life may be free, but the very best comes as three.
